Mine cost me like $240 or something including a Magnaflow muffler at Sidney Tire in Parksville. They did a good job! I fully recommend this mod, it makes your car loud and sound good, and there's a quite noticeable difference in power. Make sure you ask for 2.5" pipe, and you'll probably need to talk the guy who does it through first. It took me about five minutes to explain that I didn't want any cats. Definitely do it, cheap and effective!

I wouldn't mind moving it to BCRX7 but their servers are somewhat dodgy sometimes.

I'd move this thread to BCRX7 myself but I'm kinda tired. What with being up all night jacking D4's rims.

OH HELL YA !!!! Went down to Lordco today and picked up my Tokico (Taquito?) BLUES Sweeeeet. My extra set of strut housings are at the shop down the road having the struts and Racing Beat Springs installed. Shoul be ready for pickup tommorow. Then I just gotta find a little spare time to do the install and BAAAAAAAAAAM. Suspension swap done. Only took 2 fucking years.

Now that I've got all the parts, let's play Guess What's Going to Go Wrong and Screw George Out of Finishing This Project.

I'm going to say that I won't be able to separate the old struts from the control arm, specifically the last bolt. That way I won't be able to get down to the shop. That's my guess. Oh oh oh maybe I'll shear a bolt off and really fuck myself over.....

Just be carefull with those bolts.I rounded the heads on a pair of them and bought new hardware when I swaped over.My struts didn't want to release the top mount either so I had to cut the stock spring and cut the strut shaft and grind it flat on two spots and clamped it in a vise to get the top nut and mount off it. Suspensions is fun.......................NOT! I might buy more Tokikos and do my 83 next fall tho.Two 7's gets costly
